News about Aros Vision

Some news. Recently I discovered (to my surprise) or better someone else mentioned it that at least one old 68k virus from 1996/97 was working perfectly in Aros Vision.

i do not think that it did any real harm but to be sure people should use the integrated VirusZ software and scan the dirs and remove it. Or wait for next release i am preparing.

This will not only solve this issue but I also update all MMU related components and add languages.

These languages (compiler/interpreter) already work:
Amiga-E
PCQ (Pascal)
ACE (Basic Compiler)
PowerD
Python
Draco
AmiLUA
AmiBlitz
Purebasic
AMOS
Arexx

others will follow...

Recommended for installations:

http://aminet.net/package/util/misc/Installer-43_3

another thing I discovered you can easily replace Zune with MUI by copying "libs" from MUI38user in libs. 3.9 is propably too early.

Hi Olaf,

thanks a lot for the latest big update of your fat Aros Vision 2.6 (960 MB).
http://www.aros-platform.de/html/dis..._download.html

Unfortunately, I always get a strange problem with my download manager when I just click on the supplied download link on your page. Instead of trying to download http://www.natami-news.de/Aros/Aros_Vision.zip it attempts to download "Aros_Vision.zip.mas" which doesn't work and freezes the download manager. But when I copy the above URL directly into the URL input bar of IE8 then it starts downloading the correct file "Aros_Vision.zip".

Update: Be careful with this download !! After I installed Aros Vision this night I found an unknown hidden service process on my main system. This seems to be some sort of malware and was detected by HijackThis after a reboot. I still have to check my system with the latest virus signatures and removal tools.There are still some entries of this "service" in my registry on my main harddisk. At the moment, I'm using my second harddisk in the hope that it is not infected yet.

After unpacking your new distro onto my harddisk I had a problem with the following line in your startup-sequence:

Mount DEVS:DOSDrivers/~(#?.info|PIPEFS|XPIPE)

With "Set ECHO ON" at the top of the s-s you can see that the booting hangs in that line (at least on my WinUAE system). I could solve that problem by removing all drivers except for PIPE and EPIPE from Devs:DosDrivers.

You could update icon.library with the latest Aminet release and remove the out-commented lines from ";Version >NIL: icon.library 46" until ";EndIf". THX

Aros Vision does not install anything. It is just a packed dir. I have Antivirus software installed on the system and check it before I pack it. Are you sure?

P.S. I have checked the old archive with Avira without any report

My warning in the post above could be unfounded (maybe ?), but I didn't download much last night and nowhere else I got something like this strange change of the file name extension as from "Aros_Vision.zip" into "Aros_Vision.zip.mas". This means that not the contents of the zip file is infected but perhaps the html code of the Aros Vision download page has been manipulated by someone.

On my system I got a warning from HijackThis after booting:
O23 - Service: FTQTMZX - Unknown owner - E:\Peter\TMP\FTQTMZX.exe (file missing)
The contents of all TMP and TEMP drawers is always deleted at startup.
In my registry I found some entries for this malware service (probably a backdoor):
